Donkey Kong Strikes Again Coloring & Activity Book (1983)

I recently found this old coloring book amongst some childhood junk at home and finally got around to scanning it all in. Even as a kid I had a short attention span and gave up coloring after a few pages but the rest are ready for you to recolor and repurpose for a new era of retro internet mockery.

I really love how Pauline is a superstar and is the only person who can talk to Donkey Kong and how DK goes from content to raging at the mere sight of Mario. Why does he hate him so much? And why does it just end as Pauline is going up the elevator? I guess the book is actually a prequel and this is where the game picks up?

    Wow, this is really fascinating! I love that they flesh out the characters through this innocuous colouring book. The PDF you put up is no longer available… I’d love to see it in that form. Any chance you could fix the link?

    • I thought I still had it online somewhere but I don’t. We’re in the middle of packing up to move but I’m pretty sure I know where my backup drive is with the PDF. I’ll try and find it and update this post by the weekend.

    • Alright! The PDF is up on Google Drive and the link is updated in the post. Enjoy my immense coloring prowess too 😉

        • Sure thing! Happy to find the broken link too, thanks for pointing it out.
